Katy Perry’s Album Declared a ‘Biosecurity Concern’ by Australian Customs Officials…

Twitter may be doing great, but their most followed person is having problems… in Australia.

Katy Perry’s newest album, Prism, has been declared an environmental biohazard by Australian officials.

This is surely opposite of the intended effect: the artwork in the deluxe version of Prism is made of seed paper, which fans are encouraged to plant.  Seeds in the Australian version of the album are okay, but international versions (ie, imports) being brought into the country are a concern.  These international copies could contain plant species that would be invasive to the country.  Australia has quarantine rules against this to protect their ecosystem.

A customs spokesperson said:

“Seeds or plant material of international origin may be a weed not present in Australia or the host of a plant pathogen of biosecurity concern”

    lol, the invasion of the lentils… naive eco-behaviors are a plague.
    Does anyone what seeds are in that paper? Does Katy knows herself ?

    When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four e-mails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that service? Many thanks!

    Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and all. However think about if you added some great photos or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and videos, this blog could definitely be one of the most beneficial in its field. Terrific blog!
